FWIW, your handler runs fine on Mac OS 9.  One thought:
closeStackRequest should be speciific to the stack whose close box is
clicked on: I see no reason to pass it.

Thanks for testing the script, Rob.  However, if I comment out the line:
pass closeStackRequest

in the above script, the stack does not close after deleting the temp 
Perhaps the Rev editor has to do some stuff which it doesn't get done if 
the closeStackRequest is not passed? Curious.
